Senate Bows To The Will Of The People

After the Senate voted, last week, against a John Doe Provision that would leave people who reported suspicious behavior open for prosecution have today caved to the will of the people. After the vote, many Senators who voted against the bill were lambasted for the vote and received thousands upon thousands of phone calls and emails from contituents that were angry with their vote.

In response, Republicans, like the writer of the Provision Pete King (R-NY), put the provision back on the table this week. And, the will of the people rang true. The Provision has PASSED this time. If you are dilegent and report suspicious behavior, your identity will be kept anonymous, and you will be safe from any type of prosecution, especially if your reported suspicions turn out to be false.

It's a great day for all of us working to prevent another terrorist attack on American soil!!

Actually, Irina, the more I read about what the bill actually says, the more pessimistic I am. the bill that was passed doesn't grant immunity to the reporter, it just says that if the report was done in objective good faith, they can't be prosecuted. It's not that they can't be sued at all. So, I'm not completely happy about it.
